Local health initiative requests focus group participants

To better serve the Southeast Missouri region, the Madison County Health Department is teaming up with other health departments across the heartland to improve and further develop M Power, a nonprofit regional initiative dedicated to helping those in the area affected by chronic disease.

Madison County is currently registering individuals for focus groups in which they can share their opinions regarding health education services available at the health department. Those who participate will receive a $25 gift card in addition to a free meal during the focus group session. Those interested in helping the health department can contact BOLD Marketing at 573-803-0676 or
